  1. Great story I’m going to have my kids read this one!

    • I have had the great pleasure of seeing Andy play ball while with the Iron Pigs. He is a great guy. Always plays 100%+ and truly enjoys the game. He is also one of the friendliest players in the league. I will miss seeing him play in the International League this year but I wish him the best and can say that any major league team would benefit from his enthusiasm, drive, love for the game and skills… he is an excellent roll model for any young player coming up..everyone could learn much from him…thanks for the article.. nicely done

  2. Great article, but I am not sure Brett Tomko is considered someone who “almost made it”. They guy has made over $21 million dollars in his career. Regardless of not having a HOF career, I think most of the guys similar to Andy Tracy would take his bank account.

  3. Heather Kubasak says:

    I went to college with Andy, and am great friends with his wife, Tiffany! I was in her wedding and she in mine. I know Andy very well and he is probably the hardest working person I know. Not only that he is a great husband, father, son and friend. I have had the many pleasures of seeing him play, and he has such a talent for the game. I am proud to say that Andy is a good friend of mine~!

  1. [...] Ryan O’Hanlon has his story today over at The Good Men Project. And Tracy sounds like a good man. Like Crash Davis wanting no mention of his minor league home record in the Sporting News, the Oldest Player in the Minors is not normally the sort who would want attention drawn to the fact that he hadn’t made it. And as O’Hanlon notes, other minor league old timers he wanted to interview declined. [...]
